The Lycée MLK is a very young and dynmaic project that start with personal funds. Thanks to many donors and actions we were able to raise funds to pursue the progress of the school's campus (building a 100 bed dorm and a dining hall). Our ambitions, however, doesn't stop there, as we hope to grow more in order to welcome more students with appropriate infrastructures. This is the reason why we solliciate donations, in parallel of sponsorships, that will be entirely invested in the school. Find the details of past and ongoing projects here. 

As for the sponsorshops, the financial transfers are managed by the VDE Foundation which has a branch in Switzerland, in France and Burkina Faso. You can use either depending on your choice of currency. Both VDE France and Switzerland are recognized as NGOs, your donation can thus be tax-deductible. For more information please contact VDE Suisse (M. Sternberg) or VDE France (M. Zbinden).
